Cong says Modi`s fast doesn`t lessen his crime

BJP on the other hand termed the fast as "historic" and LK Advani and Arun Jaitely praised the political leadership of Modi.



New Delhi: Narendra Modi`s fast on Saturday drew sharp reactions from major political parties with Congress saying fasts do not lessen Gujarat Chief Minister`s "crimes" and Samajwadi Party attributing it to "power struggle" within
the BJP.

"Modi is feeling the need to fast, which means he has realised his involvement in crimes in Gujarat but fast cannot change anyone`s character. Fast does not lessen Modi`s crimes," Congress spokesperson Rashid Alvi said.

"The fast was reflective of the power struggle in the BJP with Modi wanting to grab the centrestage at a time when Advani is re-asserting himself," the SP leader said.

JD-U president Sharad Yadav dismissed the publicity surrounding the fast.

"Seventy to eighty per cent of people make a living at Rs 20 a day. 80 percent people fast daily. The majroity of people of the country fast regularly whether they do it for half day or full day. Nobody talks about them but fasts by individuals are discussed," Yadav said.
